I am sorry this this is not such an interesting post, so I am interspercing the paragraphs with some of my stitching for the band sampler which is growing.
Good morning to my friends (if there are any left reading this). It has been a while, hasn't it, but yes I am still alive and kicking! I have found Facebook where Sharon Boggon has her Tast Site this year so that is why my poor blog has been neglected lately
Health issues continue to bug me, but on the whole I am going well.
At the moment am in the process of getting rid of skin cancers as a result of all the years I have spent on the beach. One was a melanoma, but the best kind to get and has now all gone. I have only a small BCC to be removed from beside my nose near the corner of my eye, and every time I think of the numbing injections in that area I wince.
Anyway it is all over by the shouting now.
Because the biopsy was so close to my eye, I havent been able to wear my glasses so have not been able to stitch but will add some photos of the recent efforts. As a result of a nasty fall recently I have also had a black eye which hasnt helped matters much.
Last week I had a visit for a much loved grandaughter and her family. She has two children, and girl and a boy. I managed to de-stash some of my work to her because I know she will treasure and care for the things I have given her.
My greatgrandaughter fell in love with this bear, and also the elephant and doll, so I just had to add my first crazy patchwork cushion to the collection
We had a lovely couple of days. When my great grandson looked out my door and saw the park, his words were "that is the biggest back yard I have every seen".

Tyrell (Mr T) had a great time at the park with his soccer ball. The park is right next door to my patio and when he looked out his words were "That is the biggest back yard I have every seen Nan" (he is 7)
